Youth Engagement Series Part 5: Stephen Musarurwa (Climate Live) and Tatiana Natalie Kondo (Voice2Rep)

Welcome to Accountable Now's Accountability Pill podcast - your mini dose of CSO accountability.

Global population in 2023 has surpassed 8 billion, young people (under 30) currently represent approximately 52% of the global population with this number projected to grow in the coming decades. However, young people often face barriers to representation, participation and inclusion, limiting the ability of their voices to be heard. 

In this miniseries on ‘Meaningful Youth Engagement’ we feature conversations with young people speaking to young people about what meaningful engagement means to them, the barriers and challenges they face, and how organisations can support young people to thrive.

Part 5: Stephen Musarurwa (Climate Live) and Tatiana Natalie Kondo (Voice2Rep)

In Part 5 of the Youth Engagement Series, Stephen and Tatiana join Katie (Accountable Now Fellow) to talk about artivism – art and activism – and its relation to the climate justice scene. They share how they’ve seen art used as a tool for positive social change. They also pull from their personal experiences in international climate change conversations to talk about the barriers to youth representation and how youth representation and capacity building matters.
